On Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th, Positive Catastrophe will celebrate the release of its debut recording, Garabatos Volume One (Cuneiform Records), with a two-night stand at New York's Jazz Gallery.

The brainchild of cornetist/composer Taylor Ho Bynum and multi- instrumentalist/composer Abraham Gomez-Delgado, this self-described trans-idiomatic little big band connects the musical dots between intergalactic jazz legend Sun Ra and iconic Latin Jazz innovator Eddie Palmieri.

Founded in 2007, the group brings together some of most adventurous jazz and salsa musicians in New York. These performances will feature Jen Shyu (voice and erhu), Mark Taylor (French horn), Reut Regev (trombone), Jim Hobbs (alto sax), Michal Attias (baritone sax), Pete Fitzpatrick (guitar), Alvaro Benavides (bass) and Tomas Fujiwara (drums).

Time Out New York explains, “Positive Catastrophe pools the resources of two outstanding bandleaders: the ever-searching avant-jazz cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum, and Abraham Gomez-Delgado, head of the eclectic alterna-Latino outfit Zemog El Gallo Bueno…full of swagger and groove, it combines Mingus-esque polyphonic momentum with vibrantly off-kilter world-funk.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
